is our girl. 

My buddy, Bill has a birthday coming:
he doesn't need a thing.
So today I did this alkyd oil sketch of
the greyhound as she lounged on the couch
in our library.
This is much easier than painting an abstract or fantasy subject:
just so I get the drawing correct.

9 X 12 inches; stretched canvas.


  1. Lovely birthday gift. You've captured that 'greyhound grace.'

    1. Thanks. From a photo of course; she would have flipped over by the end of a 'real' portrait session.
